I don’t know where to begin the tale of my humorous social media birthday experiment…that seemed to also trickle into my real life.
This school social media poster, hangs in the hall of one of my kid’s schools. It was one of my most interacted Instagram pictures. Dear fellow parents of teenagers. This letter is written to you by a Mom, who is considered a “social media expert.” I was thrilled when this letter from St Tammany Parish […]
“Be Nice or Leave” is a common sign that can be seen around New Orleans from the local artist Dr. Bob. This post is going to be a little reflection here. You see, this is not my first social media rodeo for an election. Having been in the game for quite some time, I have […]
“Andy Braner is able to put his “proverbial thumb” on the most important issues facing today’s adolescent culture whose lives are digitally tethered to electronics. Discussing topics such as internet porn, self-worth from social media, fitting in with society away from electronics and suicide, he truly “gets” this technology generation. His sound, Christian-based approach is […]
Second Harvest Food Bank is a worthy cause and I am honored they asked me to Twitter their final concert of the season, Harvest the Music. When: Wednesday November 2nd Where: Lafayette Square Time: 5:00-7:30 Cost: Free but you can buy food and drink tickets there or on-line (that keeps it free). No outside food […]
My business partner, Ed, and I both love politics – local, state, national, world. We may be on opposite sides of the tracks for the most part, but we both have a passion for it. Add in our love for social media and our great partnership that is Yatmedia, and you could say we monitor […]
My good friend Tammy Munson and I were interviewed for the same article for Bridges.com article called Employers Adjust to the New World of Social Networking (pdf). Bridges.com is a career exploration site that about 15,000 schools and agencies across North America subscribe to and was written by Dan Kostka. Thanks Lindy Kyzer for recommending […]
The longer we are on Facebook, the smaller the world gets, the more problems we face. I think it can be a wonderful addition to our personal lives, but can also be problematic at times. Recently, I was the guest speaker at a college class regarding social media and advertising. One of the students had […]
Update Correction: Kai from Branchout pointed out that you can edit the picture on your BranchOut profile to be different from your Facebook picture. LinkedIn was almost as neglected as MySpace until very recently for many. Now that it is making a huge comeback, along comes the Facebook application for BranchOut. My friend sent me […]
Deciding to send you over to Yatmedia to read this post – since I made a few corrections. I apologize as I usually never remove a post. Yatmedia is done in Drupal and I am still learning that platform – so it is easier to post here first. I want this post to get some […]
LMAO with this one. But it is kind of scary how this is soooo close to reality. Your thoughts!
Giving advice is what I do best (following is another story – LOL). My business Yatmedia already has @freetweetadvice on twitter and now we are doing a Dear Yatmedia. You can ask questions and we will answer with a snarky twist. Woot woot! Dear Yatmedia, I keep attending conferences where the panels are a total […]
The longer I spend on Facebook, the more annoyed I become about certain things. Now I am not talking about all the annoying things a “free” platform that has 5 million users does or does not do. I’m talking about the human component to FB that is as correctable as teaching a child manners. As […]
I have this “hawt” friend (I’m married but not dead), who is old school with technology but has mastered his craft. The other day I explained to him why he needed to be on Facebook. It was a pretty straight forward explanation – plea. I put up something on my FB wall that he did […]
